When it comes to South Dallas, you can always count on some random Baptist minister to hop in and call the popular subject du jour "racist". You can guarantee these guys got a nice bag of under-the-table cash from Yellow, et al. As one commenter in the DO article points out, "...using an app to have a ride come and pick someone up is about as race blind as it can get".

The DO's Jim Shutze touches on the power of paying cash to South Dallas preachers in his book The Accommodation. It's out of print and hard to find, but the Dallas Library has a few copies. It's a very interesting read about the history of racial politics in Dallas.
